If this pandemic has taught us anything, it's that we need to learn to wait: for a cure, through a quarantine, for nice weather, for things to 'back to normal'. In our waiting, we can be discouraged and distraught...or we can learn to wait in faith - with patience and with hope. We can learn how to do that from the story of Joseph.
Welcome to Park Church
Reaching out to the world that God loves…
During the winter of 2002, a small number of grateful Christians in Red Bank, NJ began to dream together about how they could share Jesus Christ with high school kids who did not yet know him. They wanted to invite as many people as possible into the light they found themselves glad to be in. This turned into a multi-generational community of Christian faith called Outreach Red Bank (ORB).
In 2014, under the power of God’s Spirit, ORB transformed into Park Church as it found a new home at 31 Park Rd. in Tinton Falls, NJ. Located at the crossroads of major NJ roads, Park Church is situated to be a community for all of Monmouth County. The same mission from the very beginning drives us: to share Jesus Christ with people who don’t yet know him. We’d love to have you join us.
Join us online at 9AM every Sunday this winter!
In a world of so much distraction, one of our biggest challenges is simply being present to the people in our lives. But isn't that what people truly need? It's something Jesus was great at, and we can learn from him.
In today's message, we explore the last barrier that keeps people away from following Jesus: our own judgmentalism. It was actually something that Jesus could see coming from miles away - and he warned us about. Too bad we tend not to listen! Let's start listening today.

Let's Get Together! We hope you're having a nice March so far...in like a lion, out like a lamb and all. We have some exciting in-person gatherings to let you know about in this month's video update, so make sure to watch the video above.
Dear Park Family and Friends, I have a vivid memory of one morning last March. I was eating breakfast at Americana Diner with my family and in-laws who were about to leave after a brief visit. The news anchors on the flatscreen TVs were consumed with the rapidly spreading coronavirus. I was consumed with the question of what this would mean for Park. That upcoming Sunday became our first Park@Home. Despite the adaptability and excellence with which our staff were able to pivot (special shoutout to Matt Agresti), after making the decision to move worship online, I remember thinking to myself, “I hope this doesn’t last more than a month.” And nearly one year later, here we are.
Happy February! Now on with the updates...We hope you had a wonderful snowy week, and are gearing up for a super weekend. We want to keep you up-to-date on some of the big goings ons at Park, so here's a video update from Michael (click the video above). This month's update hits on:Park Kids and the Family Pastor search, Sunday gatherings, Community Groups. We hope this is helpful to keep you up to date on some big things happening at Park. Let us know what sort of updates you'd like in the future.

On Sunday March 28, after our first outdoor worship gathering of the new year, we will hold an Easter Egg Hunt! We'll have eggs to hunt, crafts, and more. It's for ages 0-10 (5th grade), and we'd love to see you there...in fact, we'd love to see you bring a friend as well.
On Sunday March 14 from 2-5PM, we will be opening up the auditorium at 31 Park to simply give you some time to pray. For many of you, it might be your first time "back" to 31 Park in over a year. We'll have some quiet music playing in the hallways, socially distant prayer stations in the auditorium, and a guide to help you along. Feel free to stop in whenever you'd like, for as long as you'd like (open house style).
This spring, Park Church will be gathering for simplified outdoor Sunday worship gatherings at 312 Hance Ave. (former Monmouth Church of Christ property) at 9:30AM (weather permitting!).
Join us every Thursday at 3:12PM - from wherever you are - to pray for God’s Kingdom to come here in Monmouth County at 312 Hance as it is in heaven! Just don’t close your eyes if you’re driving!
Join us ON THE 3rd THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH at 9AM as we walk the grounds and neighborhood at 312 Hance (our future home!) in order to pray for God’s Kingdom to come here in County as it is in heaven!
